I can't wait. I love this time of year and I so much love being a mom this time of year. Guillermo and Maya are so excited, Maya especially, it seems. Throughout the day for the past several days, she has picked various presents from under the tree. "What's in there?" "What's in the present, mama." "For me?" "Oh, present for you."
I hope their childhood Christmases are as magical as mine.
